My spirit is over whelmed with sadness as I see so many pastors and Bible teachers corrupting Biblical Truth, so let me untangle it for you.
I know this will upset many people but I must address this before I explode.
There are great depths to which I could go with this topic but let me simply deal with one point: Eternal Security, aka eternal salvation or “once save, always saved”.
There is one verse of scripture which makes everything CLEAR on this subject: Ephesians 2:8-9 which states: 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
But unfortunately that’s not what most of our churches, preachers and teachers are teaching these days. Is it any wonder our people are confused?
I heard a televangelist preaching this past week on how to a “return to grace, if you have fallen from from grace?
My question is, “HOW can you fall from grace if you’ve been born again?” you’ve repented of your sin and invited JESUS to come into your heart. The answer is clear, you can’t.
John reminds us, “Jesus gives us eternal life, and we shall never perish; no one can snatch us out of His hand.” (John 10:28)
Probably the greatest verse of all most of us have learned from childhood is John 3:16,
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Titus also tells us “2 the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time.”
That’s a pretty strong promise, ETERNALLY promised before the beginning of time.
Of course there are always the nay Sayers that want to bring up Galatians 5:4 which says 4 You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.
In other words, if you are trying to live a sinless life in expectation of getting into Heaven or you’re trying to live via the ten commandments, Levitical or Deuteronomic code/law, you can forget it. Only God’s grace through the shed blood of Jesus can get you there.
Jesus death and resurrection changed everything. Man is no longer bound by the law.
